    With that much at stake I would PM Heavymetals - he has a maggie and has apparently replaced the sensor with the maggie in place. He can give you the details, or correct me if I have misinterpreted his posts.

    PS - He is on west coast time.

    Re: Oil Pressure Sensor Sender Failure

    i tried to PM you heavymetals, but i'm still not authorized. i have my windshield wiper fascia off and bought a 1 1/16 sensor socket which i've ground down as much as i can and still can't get it to fit over the sensor. it keeps hitting my maggie valley cover, what did you use to get the sensor out?

    Re: Oil Pressure Sensor Sender Failure

    I use this:




    Also, if the valley cover is interfering, you may have to break out the Dremel and grind some material away (I had to so I know).

    Old story, but when I installed my maggie I was telling my friend helping me that I hoped I never had to replace that sensor.

    I am on #4. but I can replace those POS in short order now.

    Re: Oil Pressure Sensor Sender Failure

    thanks for the input, i ended up cutting 1/3 of the socket wall off and doing minimal turns. i borrowed a dremel but didn't have a good bit so i couldn't grind enough of the portion on the valley cover that was interfering with the sensor removal

    Where there is a will........

    You will end up grinding that off when you are replacing sensor #3

    Re: Oil Pressure Sensor Sender Failure

    I had to replace mine twice...once when pressure went high and again when I snapped the connector off installing the Maggie. The valley plate does need to come off to replace it.

    I opted to go aftermarket and got a Dormont(?) sensor for $45.00, and I think it is actually a much better piece than the OEM one. It is made from brass and has a weighted, quality feel vice the fly-weight OEM piece. Aftermarket feels and looks like a higher quality piece IMO.

    Is there a specific auto parts store (chain) that sells that brand?

    Re: Oil Pressure Sensor Sender Failure

    we've found a Standard part that is for an older n* with a smaller thread works best for cars where the OEM sensor seems to fluctuate too much
    (you just need a fitting to step up the thread size to fit into the oil filter housing)
    PS270 i think is the Standard part number
